Technology Forum

Technology Forum: GC
Gas chromatography (GC) continues to be a workhorse technique in the analytical laboratory, but users now face choices of upgrading their systems to newer time-saving technologies or possibly switching to hydrogen carrier gas. Participants in this Technology Forum are Eric Denoyer and Rebecca Veeneman of Agilent Technologies, Jim Luong of Dow Chemical Canada, and Matthew S. Klee of JAS Inc.
Learn How To Convert from Helium to Hydrogen as a Carrier Gas in Gas Chromatography
H2 is commonly used as GC carrier gas as the cost of He is increasing and its availability is decreasing. H2 can provide more rapid separations at lower temperatures than He and provides longer column life. The use of Hydrogen from an in-house generator will lead to considerable benefits in cost, safety, and convenience. Down Load How To Guide.
